Cellulite is a natural occurrence that people of all ages and genders can develop. While it is not specific to women, they tend to see cellulite develop on the body more often than male patients. An estimated 85% of all female patients 21 years of age and older will develop cellulite.

These dents can range in visibility and severity, and most commonly appears on the lower body, including the buttocks, thighs, and legs. It can be unflattering for some and cause embarrassment and self-consciousness.

At the Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids cellulite removal treatments are offered to patients all over Michigan, including Birmingham, Detroit, and Kalamazoo.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite results from bands that extend from the deeper muscle or fascia that makes the fat deposits more prominent and visible creating the appearance of dimpling. It generally affects the hips, thighs, buttocks, belly, and can be noticeable when wearing shorts, skirts, bathing suits, or revealing clothing.

What are the Benefits ofCellulite Removal

Cosmetic cellulite removal treatments can help to reduce the appearance of this dimpling in the skin.

The immediate goal is a smoother, softer surface, but cellulite removal can offer many other benefits, including more youthful skin and a boost in confidence. At the Bengtson Center for Plastic Surgery Grand Rapids, we strive to deliver the best cellulite removal Grand Rapids has to offer along with customizable body contouring procedures. Patients can see tighter, more toned skin with non-surgical procedures that improve over time.

What Treatments can Reduce Cellulite?

Our facility in Grand Rapids offers Cellfina, an FDA-approved cellulite removal treatment to patients who want to treat the appearance of cellulite on their skin. This procedure works by targeting the bands and strands of connective tissue that cause the unwanted dimples beneath the surface. It works to cut these tissues and release the tension on them, reducing the stress causing the dimpling.

  • Unlike previous methods, Cellfina uses a microblade to deliver a less invasive treatment that reduces healing times, procedure length, and complications. Cellfina is performed in-house and can take under 30 minutes to administer.

Is Cellulite Removal Permanent?

There is no cure or permanent treatment for cellulite. Even with cosmetic enhancements like Cellfina, changes in the body may occur, causing more cellulite to develop later down the line, however, the treatments appear to be permanent for those areas receiving treatment.

Cellfina has a lifetime guarantee and early outcome data appears very promising. However, this treatment can greatly reduce visible signs of cellulite and help to prevent it from reforming when coupled with regular exercise and skincare. Additionally, some of our Grand Rapids cellulite removal patients find that getting other cosmetic enhancements can improve the appearance of the area they were getting cellulite, which can stop it from coming back. You can talk to Dr. Bengtson or Dr. Alfonso about long-term treatment options and how to maintain your results over time.

Ideal Candidates

Who Can Get Cellulite Reduction Treatments?

While cellulite can affect a large number of patients, treating it can be a much more unique process. Effective cellulite removal treatments are carefully customized to suit each patient’s needs in the best way possible.

Cellfina is a versatile treatment option that is suited for adults who are in good health and are a stable weight. Talk to Dr. Bengtson or Dr. Alfonso to learn about our cellulite removal treatments and whether Cellfina is the best choice for you.

Can I Correct Cellulite withPlastic Surgery?

For some, cellulite removal is part of their full-scale body contouring procedure and may help to deliver a more youthful appearance overall and can easily be incorporated into other procedures.

If you are using fat transfer, liposuction, or plastic surgery to lift, tighten, and reduce unwanted fat and tissue in areas like the abdomen, hips, butt, thighs, and more, cellulite removal may also help to deliver a more polished, refined result.

What is the Cost of Cellulite Removal in Grand Rapids?

The cost of cellulite removal in Grand Rapids will vary based on every patient’s unique needs, the number and extent of treatment, procedure plan, and the general cost of Dr. Bengtson’s time and expertise and the facility fees. We accept many payment options and offer flexible financing options to help accommodate all of our patients in Grand Rapids and the surrounding communities in Michigan including the Lakeshore area.
